Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Favorite Cover Band

I know that many consider "cover bands" to be a bad word, but others see them as something like a photo album, provoking fond memories of the past and at times seperating themselves into an alltogether original entity. When it comes to Dead cover bands, there are many, many out there. Personally, I have a soft spot for DarkStar Orchestra, not only for their musical ability, but also for their attention to detail which speaks volumes for their love of the Dead. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, these folks are flattering the hell out of the Dead. Who are some of your favorites and why?

In addition, being orginally from Boston, I should give a nod to Max Creek and Slipknot; oh, I'm sorry, not the Hannibal Lechter look-alikes from Iowa, but the band who had the name first and were made to change it to The Knot. Both MC and SK (or legally TK) do great covers in addition to many fine originals.

Of the covers I've heard/seen, no one in my opinion comes close to DSO. Here in St. Louis there have been two long standing bands, Jakes Leg and The Shwag. The Shwag is now here on LMA. Zen Tricksters(also here)are a bit more nationally recognized. I don't mind seeing these gus in a bar while haing some pops, but to listen to them in the car when there are hundreds of Dead shows that I haven't heard yet doesn't make sense to me. I have a hard time listening to Phil & Friends on cd, because if thats the kind of music I want to hear, why not just slip a hot Dead show in. I guess its all good when compared to the rot that passes for music commercially.

I love listening to Phil & Friends personally. Have you heard the latests sbd release from vermont?? not picking on your personal tastes!
I just love what Phil brings to a reinterpretation of the dead's catalogue. And Joan just brings so much to songs like Candyman, PeggyO, etc. Worth a listen in my pathetic opinion. :) Phil's latest lineup is the best so far (expecially now that he doesn't sound like a cross between the dead and the allmans)

give it a shot (if you haven't recently)

I know I'd love it LIVE but to listen to them, nah. I don't really care for Joan either. Just my opinion/preference. I mean she's ok on some stuff but most of it's too much for me. I like Phil's new lineup that the Grateful Alman Dead but imo Phil's best " lineup" was anyone that included Kimock. Those are pretty much the only ones that I'd listen to on CD. The one that doesn't get enough recognition I think is the one with Dave Nelson Band. Man! That was good! They really could hit on the Good ol Country flavored Dead.

ok - i dont agree with you about Joan - love her singin jerry - but i do agree that Kimock was the best he had in his lineup. That Phil release with Jorma and Steve was beyond awesome. Guess i Just like phil's new projects more that the rest of you - that's cool though - music is so subjective. i just think he brings such a great new sound to the table - ive heard the dead so much over that past 30 years, i like a bit of a change but with the same tunes. refreshing in my opinion, but obvioulsy not everyone thinks that. respect your opinions though (even though i am right and you are wrong - lol)

I like that Phil takes on stuff like the Eleven, for sure. What I don't like is I get this whole vibe that Phil might as well be conducting them from out front. To me, and this is just my opinion, is the difference between a group named after the leader and a band named after no one. One is a " project" and the other is a band. That's at least how I feel it.

musically I could see that but whatever that vibe is - emotion whatever - Ratdog does it for me more than Phils band. Kinda like Phish and the Dead. I can honestly say Phish were way tighter and more together from a technical perspective but they never did anything for me on an emotional level like the Dead did and still do.

I whole heartedl agree that I cannot really give any serious listening time to folks covering the Dead, no matter how good they may be, when there is such a treasure trove of original stuff so readily available. What I DO love about a good cover band is seeing them live, getting the chance to reconnect with some old friends and re-creating, even a little bit, the vibe that was only available at a Dead show.

If it's the scene you miss, check-out a live String Cheese show. BUT, not at a mega-fest. Try and find them at a smaller venue. In 2002, they played here in Chico at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in the Livestock Pavillion! And in 2004 I saw them in Hayfork, CA(NOT Hayward)at Trinity County Fairgraounds. Both shows rock and are available for trade.

SCI is an amazing band live, just like Bela Fleck, Widespread Panic, Gov't Mule and many more; however the only chances I have had to see them live are at the aforementioned mega-fests or for the others, larger arenas. Call me an grumpy old man, but I no longer can enjoy being in the middle of a mass of 18 year old kids spilling $10 beer all over me. Other than my living room, I no longer venture out to see a band unless they are playing a much smaller, more intimate venue where the crowd is much more likely to be more into the music than drinking and projectile vomiting on my shoes. IMHO of course.

Yeah! Back when I lived in the Bay Area and had time and money to go to everything, i came to that same conclusion. My wife and I(then dating) saw bands like Dave Matthews opening for Phish at San Jose State and it was super. But just a few years later, it was these bands Shoreline and 13 year-old girls screaming "DAAAAAVVVEE, he's soo fine!".

Aaahhhh, I knew I'd never go back. Now we see shows at our local joint, The Sierra Nevada Brewery! Not bad,eh?

High Flow,

"That's like calling Fogerty a Creedence cover band. Isn't it?"

John Fogerty is not a CCR cover band, he is a guy playing the songs that he wrote, however the rest of the guys who tour under a different yet similar name (I forget what they call themselves, Creedence Revisited?) are a cover band. Just because a former member is on the band does not preclude it from being a cover or tribute band.

At the risk of getting the "Liamfinnegan treatment", in my opinion, Phil & Friends is the best GD cover band around, and I know from previous threads that I am not the only one on this site with this opinion.

To me, a cover band is one that plays mostly songs from a certain band and doesn't really appreciably change the sound or arrangements of those songs. By this definition, PL&F is more of a cover band than Rat Dog, because 1) Bob wrote most of the songs he performs (I know they do some Jerry tunes) and 2) There is more of a reworking of many of those songs than I hear with Phil and 3) I think (and I've never really liked or paid much attention to Ratdog so I may be wrong) Bob is still writing new songs.

All That being said, I prefer Phil to Ratdog any day of the week.

I know there was a lot of bitchin' and moanin' when Ryan Adams played a few shows with Phil, but at least he introduced some new songs to the mix, one of which, Magnolia Mountain, still gets played. I also know Phil had a huge amount to do with the arrangements of the tunes he covers (and of course he plays a few of his own Dead songs, Box of Rain and Unbroken Chain), but if Jack Cassady or Jorma had a band that played mostly Airplane tunes, Mitch Mitchell or Noel Redding one playing Jimi tunes I would call them a cover band as well.

OK. I just feel if a key member of the original band is part of the line-up, under a new name, it's not exactly a cover band. Fogerty was more vital to Creedence than Phil was to GD, from the songwriting perspective. However, I feel Phil is SO MUCH a part of what GD is, was and will be, that he's playing his songs. Not covering ones by other bands.

All THAT said, Los Lobos has played the best cover TUNES of any band I've seen live.

Pat - Not sure which way yours was directed, but I agree. My point WAS, GD is Phil and Phil is GD. So, HOW can PAF be a GD cover band?

Purple stated, Fogerty wrote the songs and that's the essential difference to him. Not to me.

I wouldn't call Ringo Starr(better example than McCartney) a Beatles cover band either. Even though Ringo didn't write songs his importance to the Beatles excludes him from ever having that label.

With LL, you get to hear these great songs performed by a great band. I've seen LL in many venues, but they go psychedelic at the Fillmore. It's special!

BTW, many bands are covering Old Crow Medicine Show's "Wagon Wheel". Enter "wagon wheel" in LMA search and check it out. Great tune.

I don't like them playing the others sorry.It's not that they don't do them good, it's just that they aint a bar/wedding band anmore. They still have that garage band feel but with that seasoned professionalism. They just have too damn many fine original compositions they hardly ever play. I'd rather they play more obscure covers if they're going to do them. Obviously they enjoy playing them or maybe it's people like you cheering too loudly during these covers that makes them keep playing them? That's it, it's you're fault huh? Just kidding. ps - the what's going on from their 2 disc collection is killer so is politician.

They (still cannot figure out who they are) always say you have to die to get things named after you (or part with vast sums of money. The liamfinnegan treatment? Bound to become as famous as the heimlach maneuver.

Being bored with this mortal coil, I decided to skip to another incarnation- Karn Evil 9 was so so boring, violent, senseless, and shameful. Only thing that made that world liveable was the good ol GD.

Things have not changed much- everything looks exactly the same after death- one advantage is not having to type- I need only think these words on the page- and the download times are instantaneous- I had the entire LMA hardwired into my infinite brain in a few seconds- whereever I go I think of the date and it starts streaming in my mind- so cool.

Phil and Friends is the best Grateful Dead cover band for sure. I already stated Timberwolf as my other favorite- but they are no longer around. That leaves me with the Zen Tricksters as the best if having a former member rules out the band.

The Jerry guy in that band has a vast range and is inventive, interesting, never boring, and definitely lets the guitar play him. If you have a chance to catch them, it would be a treat

Hey Direwolf- have you ever been diagnosed as bi-polar?! You had the guy nearly tarred and feathered a couple days ago. You ARE a good sport, just like you said you were. Maybe you used the words warm and fuzzy or something. lol.

Does seem like a fancy way of saying moody.

Smuttynose - Shoals Pale Ale. yummy beer if you like microbrews. hope you get a chance to enjoy it - usually relatively easy to find out in this area.

Hey dire, have you ever tried this? Black Toad Ale?
It's brewed in Chicago and a good friend recommended it to me, but alas, I can't find it anywhere to test.
A great brewery here in Cali is the Mendocino Brewing Co.
Red Tail Ale is yummy! Too bad there's no ez way to trade cold brews! lol

Had Red Tails for the first time the same day those photos were taken on the Who Are You thread. Yummy is right, especially at lunch! Have not seen Black Toads here in St. Louis which is odd as we should be one the largest, closest markets to Chicago.

When you can't have some kind, have some Schwag. They're based in central MO and have a badass throwdown at a private campground in the ozarks several times a year. Schwagstock. I've been to a bunch of festivals and I've never had more fun than at this tiny little gathering of souls.

Went there last weekend, Schwag played 2 nights and an acoustic set on sunday. JBG opened both nights and P-Funk (OMFG) tore the house down with an all night set Saturday. As if that weren't enough, Particle closed out sunday night. Sick, sick shit.

Beautiful place, beautiful music, beautiful people. Check 'em out!

A great SFBay Area band I've listened to are the Dead Guise, a few times at the Oakland Metro, The Bistro in Hayward and Santa Cruz.
They have the raw energy of a younger Dead, early 70's then on. Kenny has his chops well down with electricfried noodles (huh?) well, their site has some nice free DL's of them live to sample. A very Dead Jam band IMO ****

yeah too close. I saw them at that Comes A Time show at the Greek, man that guy sounds scarily like Jerry vocally. Although if you're going to sound exactly like him why not pick the young voice? Whatever, I wanted the Vegas Elvis on the stamp so what do I know?

I'm 6-9 hours ahead here and so I'll be late for posts you've been discussing at evenings over there. I have to say I really love Phil and all the friends he ever had by now, there are excellent shows from this july, 6/9/11, also great sound, I think Rob Clarke does a great job, and also the Warfield '99 which I just listened to,is great. I find there is a very nice energy between Phil and all the people playing with him and there are songs that sound wonderful, sometimes sure a little different from the older times with the GD.I thought the Comes a Time Tribute was really good,too.

They are by NO means a cover band but why aren't more people hip to the Dave Nelson Band? Besides his original ( including New Riders )stuff they play some Dead tunes and they play them VERY good. They completely capture the psychedelic countryfried thing like late 69 very early 70's Dead.

I'm right with you with DSO - just a great great band. Best I've heard of the dead covers. Can't think of any other real good ones, so i guess i'm just really not adding anything of value to your post ;)
